A wacky interactive cartoon where you play Sean, a character that seems to continuously find himself in bad situations. Funny stuff. New version includes a way to save the game to a file, a menubar, and other minor bug fixes. Now runs on Hypercard Player.
From a forum post:
"This is a MacOS 9 emulator (for OSX - so I guess I'm mostly looking at
Riff and Hotstuff). It has a few hoops to jump through to get it
working. Drag the 'hypercard.sheepvm' onto 'Sheepshaver' to launch
Hypercard in OS9. From within the emulator, your real hard drive will
show up as 'UNIX'. Use the hypercard menu to 'Open Stack', navigate to
the game file, and away you'll go!
It's a game I think might appeal to you guys, and it's a really
interesting glimpse into hypercard gaming technology (where Myst was
originally developed, for example). You can find other game 'stacks'
around the web that you could play with too, but this one was my
favourite as a child.
The game only takes around 10 minutes to play if you know what you're
doing. It is slightly brutal in making you go back to the beginning if
you die and haven't manually saved - but that's par for the course for
games this old. You will probably die a lot, so save a lot.
Some tips to get you started:
1) The first screen is dark and there's a horrible noise. You are in
bed and have to click around the screen to find the lamp to turn it on.
2) You can access your inventory either by clicking on Sean or through the main menu (the 'apple bar')
3) When you find an oven, look inside it before you turn it on.
4) Watch TV.
5) Don't let the game tell you what not to do.
I'd love you guys to have a go and hear your opinions."
